We stayed at Mike's for two nights after a long bus ride from Lushoto. First of all, Mike is an incredible host and willing to go beyond what is expected to meet your needs. We were able to stay an extra night because Mike personally drove us to Dar and to the airport via an extra safari at Sadani NP. Thanks again Mike!! Each day we enjoyed breakfast and dinner. Breakfast was so filling with more than enough food and homemade bread, and dinner was some of the freshest and most delicious seafood dinners we have eaten in a long time, The beach is great; very safe and quiet and you can walk forever. The cottage we stayed in was clean and comfortable and steps away from the beach. We were served real, fresh local coffee every morning which was such a great way to wake up. We could not recommend Mike's enough for anyone looking to have a memorable experience off the typical tourist track. Thanks again Mike for everything!!
